  Axolotls: The Fascinating Mexican Axolotl and the Tiger Salamander
Axolotls of various colours occur in captivity, including grey, shades of brown, leucistic (white with fl eyes), golden albino, white albino, as well as other varieties, such as the melanoid (a near-fl animal).
Fortunately, due to the importance of the Axolotl in scientific research, it is unheard of for them to be taken from the wild because of the huge numbers bred in captivity each year.
The Axolotl is a fascinating creature for a number of reasons, including its grotesque appearance, its ability to regenerate, and primarily the fact that it exhibits the phenomenon known as neoteny.

  Axolotl - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It is generally admitted that the axolotls which were kept alive in Europe and were particularly abundant between 1870 and 1880 are all the descendants of a stock bred in Paris and distributed chiefly by dealers, originally, we believe, by the late P. Carbonnier.
The original axolotls, from the vicinity of Mexico City, it is believed, arrived at the Jardin d'Acclimatation, Paris, late in 1863.
So numerous were the axolotls that the Paris Museum was able to distribute to other institutions, as well as to dealers and private individuals, over a thousand examples, which found their way to all parts of Europe, and numberless specimens have been kept in England from 1866 to the present day.
